{real couple} Bridgette + Tim at Tampa Bay Watch

Carrie Wildes Photography

Bridgette and Tim chose Tampa Bay Watch, a non-profit dedicated to the restoration and protection of Florida’s precious wetlands, for their September wedding. Their first look was on the dock leading out to the bay, and their ceremony was truly unique: they rang the “truce bell,” which is how they remember their promises to one another and work through any disagreements. During the reception, they were graced with appearances by Hulk Hogan and Indiana Jones (Tim is a huge fan of costumes). Their favors were very creative, too – their love for fitness translated into a mason jar filled with vanilla protein powder labeled “getting stronger every day.” Instead of a wedding cake, they had a cake made of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Carrie Wildes Photography captured all of the wonderful details!
